It's time to welcome our first speciality retailers to Bonnie & Wild
We are excited to announce that premium meat wholesaler MacDuff 1890 and renowned independent drink distributor Inverarity Morton are both opening their first retail ventures at our Scottish Marketplace.
MacDuff 1890 and Inverarity Morton will occupy two of our speciality retail spaces when we officially open our Scottish Marketplace on June 24. Both businesses have said it was Bonnie & Wild’s commitment to sustainability, local sourcing, quality and customer engagement that attracted them into the Food Hall.
MacDuff 1890, which traces its origins back to the year 1890, supplies premium quality beef, lamb and pork to butchers, chefs and caterers across the UK and overseas. The Wishaw-based business sources from a small network of quality assured family-run farms, and counts some of Scotland’s best-known chefs and restaurants among its customers, including chefs Scott Smith at Fhior, Roberta Hall at The Little Chartroom, Fred Berkmiller at L'escargot Bleu, Stuart Ralston at Noto and Aizle, and Neil Forbes at Cafe St Honore.
Inverarity Morton, which today began advertising for a Manager for its new retail concept, is Scotland’s leading independent wines and spirits merchant and is renowned for supplying the on-trade across the country. The Bonnie & Wild bottleshop will be Inverarity Morton’s first foray into retail in the capital.
MacDuff 1890 and Inverarity Morton join an exciting line-up of food businesses that includes well known names such as BBC Masterchef-winner Gary Maclean, acclaimed Glasgow institution The Gannet, and vegan restaurant group Erpingham House.
James Withers, Scotland Food & Drink Chief Executive, said: “There is a lot of excitement about the Bonnie & Wild Food Hall. As Scotland’s hospitality and retail sector recovers from the pandemic, this will be a fantastic, new opportunity to showcase Scotland’s food and drink industry right in the heart of the capital. It is great to see another two businesses becoming partners, and it will be producers and suppliers who are passionate about what they do that will bring such character and quality to the Food Hall.
“After a tough year, this is yet another sign that Scotland’s food, drink and hospitality sector has reasons to be very hopeful and excited for what lies ahead.”
